Parkinson to endorse Democrat Holland for governor

June 30, 2010


— Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson is preparing to endorse a Democratic state senator running for governor this fall.

Parkinson plans to attend a Statehouse rally on Thursday to endorse Sen. Tom Holland of Baldwin City.

Holland is the lone Democrat in the race. State Sen. Kelly Kultala, a Democrat from Kansas City, is Holland's running mate.

Parkinson has chosen not to run for a full term as governor.

U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback is the leading Republican candidate for governor. His running mate is state Sen. Jeff Colyer of Overland Park.

Also on the GOP ballot is Joan Heffington of Derby, a former home builder and founder of a nonprofit legal organization. Her running mate is Mark Holick, pastor of the Spirit One Christian Center in Wichita.

Not that people would want another choice since the Rs and Ds are doing such a bang-up job, but here is the best candidate.

I'd feel better about his candidacy (not enough to take him seriously, though) if his campaign writers could learn to capitalize correctly. Can't correctly write, can't run a government.

Tom Holland would make a great governor. I don't think most people in this state know how scary the alternative is.

Not exactly a shocking story, but Holland is still the better choice.

The dead are going to rise in November and toss Democrats? I feel sorry for them, but will bring the popcorn.

Can't tell a majority until the numbers come in (like the majority that put the Democrats in office in the first place), but the people you describe have been anything but "silent" of late.
